- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – As managers focus on risk-adjusted returns, creating new products to meet growing investor demands and meeting the obligations of the everchanging regulatory landscape, there is an increasing need for trusted and skilled hedge fund services partners to support them with the day-to-day operations.

In this publication “Powering Hedge Funds,” HedgeNordic aims to investigate how hedge fund managers can act even smarter, gaining time and efficiency doing what they are there for, namely creating uncorrelated returns for their investors. We want to highlight what service providers do for managers, what they could do and what is actually needed to make a hedge fund work. In short, we want to showcase the “Intel inside” equivalent for the hedge fund space.

One additional aspect to investigate is how far the hedge fund industry, particularly in the Nordics, has come with embracing new – and old – technologies, and where there are still areas of improvement. We aim to showcase some concrete solutions that can make managers’ and investors’ daily jobs and routines more efficient, streamlined and cost effective and aim to give potential end-users smart options to their requirements, or even open doors they were unaware existed.

The publication starts off with guide on “How to Start a Hedge Fund: 5 Steps for Setting Up for Long-Term Success” by Michael Hutner from SS&C Eze. Conor Daly and Hugh O’Dea from Goldman Sachs proceed to provide insights into “Optimising Currency Hedging for Funds and Share Classes.”

Johan Björkholm from Swedish fund hotel AIFM Group tells hedge fund and other fund managers to “Focus on What You Do Best” and let fund hotels take care of their entire laundry list of responsibilities. Declan Quilligan of Citco Fund Services then discusses “How Global Asset Servicers can Power Regional Hedge Funds.”

In “Saxo Bank: 30 Years of FinTech Innovation,” one can learn more about Saxo Bank’s scalable platform that is always seeking to adapt and stay ahead of the curve. Mathias Österberg goes on to share more insights into how Finnish fund solution provider GRIT Governance is “GRIT-ting the Finnish Hedge Fund Industry” by setting out on the mission to “help the daring build legendary investment businesses” in Finland and beyond.

Are you ready for Institutional capital?” asks Edgefolio’s Rowen Pillay, who puts forward some guidance for emerging fund managers seeking institutional capital. In “Fund operations: The explosion of algorithmic trading,” Ryan Guichon from RBC Investor & Treasury Services provides his insights on how fund operating models are evolving to align with today’s dynamic market environment. experts from Novus round up the publication with more insights into “An Allocator’s View on Effective Hedge Fund Marketing.”
